on his nomination for secretary of defense. one topic sure to come up is israel, which just launched an air strike in syria that u.s. officials say targeted a convoy of russian-made weapons that were headed for lebanon. now russia, the arab league, and hezbollah are all condemning the action. >>> and the new chairman of the senate foreign relations committee pays back $60,000 to a donor for airplane rides. and that donor is under investigation by the fbi. much more on a stranger sorry surrounding senator bob menen z menendez. good morning from washington. it's thursday, january 31st, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. now less than 30 minutes away from the start of chuck hagel's confirmation hearing to become the next secretary of defense. we'll take you there live for his opening statement, along with what's expected to be some tough questioning from some big-name republicans. let's get right to my first read of the morning. let's start with the hagel confirmation grilling. could be the most contentious nomination hear of the president's second term and frankly, of
statements is made on israel and the united states, that our policy of non-engagement with the syrians as, "isolated us more than the syrians," and a 2009 statement that "we should not isolate hamas," a terrorist organization. there is much to be explored at this hearing. but as we struggle with the difficult security challenges facing our nation, the president needs to have a secretary of trust,e in whom he has stresse who will give him unvarnished advice, a person of integrity, and one who has a personal understanding of the consequences of decisions relative to the use of military force. senator hagel certainly has those critically important qualifications to lead the department of defense. senator inhofe. >> thank you, mr. chairman. first of all, i would like to echo your remarks about secretary panetta and the work he has done. i don't see him here today, but i do recall that when he was first nominated, i was probably one of the first phone calls to him, and i have enjoyed working with him and a mccain, the same way, i continue to depend on his counsel. you and i have worked very we
, his inaugural speech was very domestically focused. look, we just had elections in israel, john kerry not in the same place benjamin netanyahu is regarding a two-state solution, at least right now. there are huge challenges, iran, there are huge challenges in the foreign policy front that don't get talked about as much, but are clearly things that not only will be difficult for the president and his team to navigate, but will also have a significant say in how this president is viewed by history. >> and, by the way, we just got word that the white house is going to proceed with a nomination of general allen to be the nato supreme allied commander now that he's been cleared by the pentagon investigation going back to the petraeus case. thanks to all of you, david sanger and kelly o'donnell, of course, and chris cillizza, see you later. thanks very much. >>> clinton today put a lot of blame on congress for withholding aid. >> we have to get our act together between the administration and congress. if this is a priority and if we are serious about trying it help this government stand up
israel for airstrike inside syria wednesday. syria says israel hit a research facility. conor powell is sorting through things in jerusalem. >> syria's bloody civil war could be on the brink of expanding beyond the borders. as assad regime vowed to retaliation on airstrike on weapons convoy inside syria. u.s. officials confirm the strike on the convoy which was believed to be carrying sophisticated russian made fa-17. surface-to-air missiles from syria to t hezbollah fighters in lebanon. world leaders have long feared that the chaos of the syrian civil war would lead to transfer of weapons to extremist groups. syria denied weapons and claimed that israeli jets attacked a military facility outside damascus. syria's ally iran said there would be repercussions for israel. russia called the strike unjustified attack. >> translator: this is a serious breach. this is unacceptable action against >> reporter: the white house has not publicly commented on the attack but the pentagon officials tell fox news the u.s. was given a heads up from israel. despite the saber rattling, so far, syria an
threatening to retaliate against israel after israeli forces launched an airstrike inside syria taking out what they were say sophisticated surface-to-air missiles bound for the terror group hezbollah in lebanon. remember a few days ago a top iranian official said any attack on syria would be deemed an attack on iran. boy, this one could get very tense. we're watching it closely. kt will join us on that one. bill: a little bit under the radar so to speak. we'll see what happens next. we're getting going. minutes from now the confirmation hearing for defense secretary nominee chuck hagel starts in washington. first we will talk with someone doing the questioning. oklahoma senator jim inhofe will join us. is happy with hagel? you will hear from him. martha: just hours after a report that the economy actually shrunk for the first time in years this quarter, the white house says it knows why this happened. wait until you hear who they are blaming. bill: there is outrage in the city of chicago. gun violence claiming the life of a promising teenager just back from the inauguration in washington,
issue that could give energy to the opposition was whether hagel was pro-israel and with schumer's blessing, schumer is a well-known supporter of israel. this was a signal to the pro-israel community, a lot of other people, leaders in that community have endorsed hagel. so i think that pushed him very close to nomination. i think it was very interesting that senator levin at the beginning of the hearing listed all of the controversial statements that senator hagel has made -- not all of them but a substantial list, and i think he was trying to signal hagel is going to have the chance to answer all of these and he, levin, expects him to answer them satisfactorily. i think it would be surprising if in the end hagel were not confirmed. >> is that what this hearing is going to be about? are we mostly going to hear questions about statements he's made about israel, about gays and so on? how much of it do you think will be it at the heart of what he's going to have to do which is l balance the budget for one of the largers bureaucracies in the world at a time we snow a sequester is loo
statements and positions, especially about israel and iran. at times, hagel seemed to struggle to answer some of those tough questions and other times he gave answers he later had to clarify. let's go to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. jessica, it was a tough, tough day for chuck hagel? >> reporter: so far it has been, wolf. chuck was battered by republicans, forcing some stumbles and bruising. so far, no knockout blow but the day of questioning is not over yet. former senator chuck hagel sat at the table alone fielding hostile questions, including one-time close friend, john mccain. >> i want to know if you were right or wrong. that's a direct question. i expect a direct answer. >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> reporter: that exchange centered on hagel's past opposition to the iraq surnl, a surge that mccain championed. >> no one individual vote, no one individual quote, no one individual statement defines me, my beliefs or my record. we must use all our tools of american power to protect our citizens and our interests. americans must
was announcing israel would have to act. i think obama is going to have to face that either to prevent the israelis in some way or to give a red light or to think of contingencies israelis attacked how the u.s. will react. >> you will likely see senator kerry take over for senator clinton likely a shoe in. chuck hagel may have a bumpyer ride but will likely be confirmed as secretary of defense. you see a different foreign policy with those people key positions for president obama's second term? >> no question about it. first and foremost what you see not only with kerry but with john brennan now playing a key role is there is more of an effort to one slim down the size of the defense and military footprint the united states has worldwide. i think that is on the democratic budget side that is a priority. slim down spending. as a matter of foreign policy that the military and use of military force should not be the first option. i think that is what you see from hagel and kerry. of course the reinvention the cia will change as well as part of the equation. let me say that i think the adm
what happened at the the honduras. -- in honduras. we move to the middle east where israel has been concerned. whether they admit oit pubicly olicly or not. there were more focused on the palestinian issue but as the biggest issue in the middle east. iran, the people took to the streets as the defense of the principles we say we stand for and the president says we will not interfere in their sovereignty. that demoralized opposition. north korea announced they are developing in weapon that can reach united states. -- a weapon that can reach the united states. i think the bush administration was wrong to remove north korea from the list of states alters of terrorism. -- sponsors of terrorism. i hope we will reverse that. china and the conflict going on throughout the region during -- region. china is increasingly aggressive about their territorial claims. in their neighbors are looking to the united states as a counterbalance. a -- if the sequester goes through, what are we going to pivot with? these are the fundamental issues we face. as you sit with the president and help him form a
of of israel. meet yahir lapide. >> a new arrival on the scene is and personality lapide who leads israel. why has netanyahu lost steam? >> this is a very interesting revolution. there's no doubt but this election, in fact with the defeat for netanyahu. >> meaning what? he won the election. >> he may be the next prime minister. his party went down. >> who, yahir? >> no, netanyahu's own party went down from 42 seats to 31 seats. so his party had fewer seats. this guy came out of nowhere. his first time running for office. he got 19 seats. he became the most -- the second most important party in -- out of nowhere. so he has become the star of this thing. and netanyahu is going to have to make a deal with him. all of the politicians are splintered but it's never been like this. now netanyahu is going to have to move, if i may say so, this is now a center right. it is going to be much more pragmatic and open. >> how long is his term? >> five years, isn't it? >> it can be as much as five years but it almost never lasts five years because the coalition breaks up. >> how long do you think he will be
committee in just about 30 minutes. he won't have an easy time of it. critics painted hagel as anti-israel, homophobic and way too weak on iran. there have been even anti-hagel ads paid for by anonymous donors. >> while president obama says all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear iran, hagel says military action is not a viable, feasible, responsible option. >> chris lawrence is at the pentagon and chris hagel was also accused of wanting to gut the defense department so what kind of day do you think is on tap for him? >> carol, it's likely to be a pretty rough one. with avenue got word from insiders haguele is going to testify that the militant group hezbollah is a terrorist organization and that military options are on the table for iran. it's not earth-shattering, except when you compare it to what he's already said. chuck hagel's past is about to come roaring back at him. >> good morning, guys, how are you. >> reporter: how he's voted, what he said. >> he has insisted that the israelis negotiate with hamas, a terrorist organization. >> reporter: so one of the first questio
as i think most observers believe, israel has a very difficult decision in the next six to nine months whether they will use military force against the iran nuclear weapon. you can count on the obama administration not using it to the spotlight will be on netanyahu. jenna: ironic you brought up prime minister netanyahu because as we were examining this question what is different this year than last. the prime minister made interesting comments from the u.n. a month ago how different 2013 may be not only for israel and iran but for the rest of the world. let's take a listen to that. >> iran has completed the first stage. took them many years but they completed it and they are 70% of the way there. now they are well into the second stage. and, by next spring, at most, by next summer, at current enrichment rates they will have fin eshed the medium enrichment and move onto the final stage. from there it is only a few months, possibly a few weeks before they get enough enriched-uranium for the first bomb. jenna: based on that timeline, this summer come up in 2013, ambassador. do you see the

syria's president is losing his grip on power there. still ahead -- a big election in israel and what is at stake. first, is the housing crisis finally over here in the u.s.? we will look at what the numbers say. ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight, c-max has a nice little trait, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. living with moderate to semeans living with pain.is it could also mean living with joint damage. humira, adalimum, can help treat more than just the pain. for many adults, humira is clinically proven to help relieve pain and stop further joint damage. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor sh
everything from old-fashioned camel trains to jeep moving weapons from egypt to israel. >> for years the only thing separating the israeli egypt border is the road we're depriving on right now. but the egyptian revolution changed things. there is a steal reinforced fence topped with barbed wire. driving on the road are heavily armed fighters ready for combat at a moment's notice. the groups coming here are an army, they explained. we are ready for them as if we were going to war. talking about the fight a training to combat fighters and jihadist taking over the sinai peninsula in egypt. august 2011, militants came across the fence and blew up a bus on the road to israel southern beaches killing eight. there is 190 miles of board -- 120 miles boarder to guard and 100,000 square miles of barren land scape to fight in. forcing them to be expert in combat and camouflage. ally armed a pounce on prey they have waited for days. the team forms the first and last line of defense. half of their training is for heading in undercover to arab villages, snatching militants before they can meet the accompli
the middle east, with the speckor of a nuclear iran and what israel might do to stop it. mike emanuel tells us the easiest part for kerry will likely be the confirmation process. >> in a dangerous world where al-qaeda finds new places to operate, the second term of the obama administration will face numerous foreign policy challenges. >> usama bin laden in documents that came out of abadabad quoted as urging his cohorts to go to other places. to get away from the airplanes. get away from the drones. he specifically encouraged al-qaeda to disburse. and they did. >> senator john kerry is expected to be confirmed next week as america's top diplomat, replacing the former senate colleague who introduced him. he will face multiple crisis across the middle east. >> every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. every day that goes by it gets worse. >> so there is, it seems to me a very strong impetus that we realize that the present policy is not succeeding. and to look at other options to prevent what is going on for now 22 months. and 60,000 dead. >> republican senator marco rubio said the obam
it considers to be its near abroad, export terrorism, to strike against not just israel, but other western interests, including the u.s. and citizens in places like lebanon, to have its tentacles deep into gaza. it's important for iran. it's doubling down on that. also, you know, iran has no down side from the war dragging on because ironically, even if assad falls, what now is seemingly likely is that the muslim brotherhood might come to power, partly because the war has gone on so long. >> jamie: is that what's behind iran's action, that they would like to take full control of syria? >> i think they would be happy with assad fhe survived, he would have nowhere to turn to, much of the world has turned its back on him with the notable exception of rushia. but, you know, either way, what have you to -- if you step back and take a look, you see a regime -- or a region that is aflame, where you have islamist political victories and insurgent vehicles and behind the curtain is the iran iranian regime that is having a very good set of years and may have another great year as it gets closer to r
the region, think about the interests of the neighbors. think about the interests of our friends like israel, and figure out how we come up with an equation that is workable and meets those interests. now final comment, john, i don't want to go on about it. but i didn't suggest and i don't want to suggest, nor do i believe that secretary clinton was saying that people don't care about knowing what happened. i think she's talking about the difference between what the recommending as of the a.r.b. were and implementing them and this notion that we have to go backwards. but here's what i say to to you. after 29 years here, in my 29th, i respect the prerogatives of the united states senate and the members of congress, you represent the american people, you're the other branch of government, you have the right to know what took place. and i have an obligation commensurate with the, you know, regulations and classifications and privacy and other things at play here, to help you get the answers and we'll do that. i hope we can do it in a noncontentious, appropriate way. >> thank you. could i just m

government has kept the peace agreements, the camp david accords with israel and has a working relationship with the united states. i'm worried about a lot of these trends in the middle east-- we haven't even talked about the civil war? syria-- but i do think the administration is focused on this. the president has a working relationship with president mohammed morsi. israel has to meet a lot of these tests. they'll need american support. and i think we are seeing an engaged, sophisticate administration at work. >> brown: all this, of course, danielle pletka, goes to the sort of continuing fallout from the arab spring. all of these countries that nick burns just talked about and the management of that. >> and that's reality challenge. i mean, these are the questions. you know all of these sort of bureaucratic ideals -- hes had a relationship, we're maintaining this, we had a panel, we're following recommendations -- this is really about the national security of the united states and support for our allies in the region. and they're looking to us and what they are seeing is not, gee, we have

, the president's pick of chuck hagel sends a similar message. he is republican but the past statements on israel and iran as well as his opposition to the troop surge in iraq will likely make for a heated confirmation process. if confirmed, he will most likely lead major budgetary belt tightening at the pentagon. >> this is a president looking for what they used to say about eisenhower, against on the cheap. using drones, using intelligence in new way anything but to send troops into a foreign war. >> in the second term many analysts look for one last big push, perhaps immigration reform. with a growing latino vote adding additional pressure on both parties ahead of 2016 and others feel the time has passed for big bold moves. douglas brinkley said the gridlock in washington is very real and the president has to wake up every day determined not to be a lame duck president. and the inner team obama, he has had more chiefs of staff than any other president in history and with the next chief of staff, that will make five. we will talk all things inauguration, a special all stars on fox comes up next
a strongly worded statement out of the administration. we move over to the middle east where israel, quite frankly, has been concerned whether they admit it publicly or not that for the early years of the administration, they were more focused on the palestinian question as the biggest issue in the immediate when in fact the biggest issue in the middle east is that iran wants a nuclear weapon so they can attack israel and potentially other nations. talked about iran. in gine the people of iran took to the streets in defevents principle that is we say we stand for, and the president of the united states says we are not going to interfere in their sovereignty. totally demoralized the opposition. north korea today announced they are developing a weapon that can reach the united states of america. and lest anybody accuse me of being overly partisan here, i think the bush administration was wrong to remove north korea from the list of state sponsors of terrorism and i hope we'll reverse that. finally, china. and the territorial conflicts that are going on in southeast asia and throughout the re
